ds1 at home from school with temperature and headache. had a row with H last night. the dog was sick all over the floor this morning. im trying to lose weight but seem to be stuck. im still grieving for my lost baby. Ive still got the curtains closed. Dont want the neighbours to see in. Was supposed to be going to counselling later but can't go now ds1 is home ill.

Sorry. Rant over....

take a deep breath and have a cuppa!! I have done nothing all day. Feel fed up! Fell out with eldest last night shouted at H this morning!!
Went to a funeral yesterday it was the anniversary of my Dads funeral! I feel I have to be strong for the world sometimes but no one seems to think I need the support sometimes!
We all get down sometimes. At least we recognise it!!

Nip to the shop and buy a trashy mag, come back, stick a film on for ds and like M said sit down and have a cuppa.

Keep your chin up T, you seem to be doing really well atm

mandyc66 Tue 14-Jun-05 14:18:41

hope ds feels better soon. I have tried to pull myself together. hoovered the lounge carpet and had a jam sandwich!!!! not healthy no good for diet but great comfort food!!! Its almost time for the school run!!!!!

i ended up calling the doctor out cos ds1 got a rash all over. he got really hysterical when i tried to go near him and hallucinating. it was so scary. the doctor came and said he has got bad tonsilitis and a virus. sigh.

can i go to bed yet please?

mandyc66 Tue 14-Jun-05 16:31:51

poor you! Is there anyone there to help you?
Is DS dosed up now? Keep an eye on him,but snuggle up together on the sofa and well you could nod off!!!!

MIL went and got the antibiotics for me....but she was pbviously not happy that i asked her. DS has just eaten some toast now. lol

mandyc66 Tue 14-Jun-05 17:43:50

ds1 has been up all night. sweating and crying. He finally settles about 4am. He has now got up and acting like theres nothing wrong why do kids seem to get over things so quickly?? Last night and yesterday he was so poorly.....I feel a fraud having kept him at home today! I can barely keep my eyes open. Feel rotten

mandyc66 Wed 15-Jun-05 09:18:42

hi Titania! Sorry you had such a bad night! I think its akways best to have them home till they are 100% but as you say they bounce back so fast! Will mil have him for a couple of hours so you can get some sleep?

Titania Wed 15-Jun-05 09:21:01

no she is at work. FIL is in bed cos he works nights. and SIL is going out.

mandyc66 Wed 15-Jun-05 09:28:01

so you are on your own then? cant sil put it off for a couple of hours?!!
Do you live near me...I will have him!!!!

Titania Wed 15-Jun-05 09:29:09

mandyc66 Wed 15-Jun-05 09:32:06

Put his favourite video on, give him a drink and a biscuit and let him sit by the tv for an hour whilst you pop your feet up on sofa and have a power nap.

Guardianangel Wed 15-Jun-05 09:35:01

mandyc66 Wed 15-Jun-05 09:35:31

Tortington Wed 15-Jun-05 11:49:39

am sorry you are fed up you have had a lot to go through recently - of the suggestins mentined already - what are you taking on board to do to cheer yourself up?

sweetmonkey Wed 15-Jun-05 11:50:33

think positive instead of negative. so its raining use an umbrella. getting out will really make yo feel better and will give you something to do
